The book of Doctor Johannes Faust is one of the best known grimoires in the German realm. German
magicians usually referred to it as "Doctor Faust's Coercion of Hell." They ascribe its origin to the Jesuits,
perhaps a result of the style of the book.
Beginning magicians used this grimoire in the main for its talismans. For the person who knows how to read
between the lines, this grimoire offers a lot more. It opens up the access to magical powers of an enormous
potential, especially when the student has also access to the Faustian Tarot. This deck of cards is not a tarot
deck in the strictest sense, but rather a representation of the energies that slumber deep within ourselves,
ready to serve the person who has the courage to awaken them.
I admonish the reader to read between the lines and thus gain access to the magical powers that are inherent
in this fascinating book of German sorcery.
I have written a commentary to the Coercion of Hell. In this commentary, I give you some insights in the times
of the writing of this book. This brief analysis will explain why the original author had to write the grimoire in
this form. In addition, I am giving you some hints of how to read between the lines so you can draw the
maximum benefit from this fascinating work of German sorcery.
